I think I got it!

First I want to thank my dear blogging friend Amy for helping me by making a video on how to paper piece..
It was such a great big help to understand the steps of doing it right.. For the daylights I couldn't seem to get it and found myself getting so darn frustrated..  Thanks so much for doing this for me and I'm sure their must be alot of crafter's out their  that probably was in the same dilemma as I was.  Hugs to you Amy!
So with  this tutorial that I learned I need to show you all what I've conquered.  I did not one but two paper piecing cards and I think I did pretty well .   I think I will be hooked in doing more of these on my cards, etc...
So here they are:

Wah la - here is Swiss Pixies ( Birthday Gretel)
I paper piece her polka dot top and the balloons.  How cool is that?
She was inked up with copic and MS markers, stickles, and scraps of DP
sentiment from Hero Arts and clear embossed it.

And here's my second paper piecing card - Sugarplums ( Holiday Emma)
I paper pieced her dress and bow on her hair. She was inked up with copic and MS markers,
my fence is a digi image and that was inked up with Promarkers, added stickles, MS butterfly punch,
sentiment  Dandelion Designs from the set (Hello).

  As for my last card this was a digi image that was stashed with my surfer dude that I did two postings back.  She is my PM(Precious Moment Hula Babe) isn't she a darling!  She got inked up with copic and MS markers, Spellbinders Oval large, sentiment ( can't recall where I got it from ) and papers from scrap.
That's all I have to share for now, will be back later with another posting
Thanks for peeping in...
Many hugs to you all and especially to Amy!
